Great place to grab lunch. The Vodka pizza was very good. We were able to grab a table outside which was very nice and casual. Would recommend for a neighborhood spot.

Service was not good, I had to ask for pepper 3-4 times for my salad. Also drinks were coming out very slow, food was quicker. Food and drink were delicious though and the host was very friendly!

Barano’s menu is a perfect balance of comfort and tasty surprises. I always believe the true test of an Italian spot is if the fish is cooked to perfection and if the sauce (tomato sauce) is good. At Barano the fish was perfectly cooked - not chewy when fried - and the pummarola sauce was so wonderful it brought me directly to my grandmother’s kitchen when I would stick the end of the Italian bread into her pot of sauce. I truly can’t wait to come back. Plus - gluten free menu!! I’m a recently discovered celiac who is also Italian so this made my night. Thank you Barano for a wonderful meal.

Delicious food and amazing service! Sat outside with three of my friends for dinner and the waitstaff could not have been more impressive. We dropped a knife and he was there with a clean knife within seconds without us even asking. We were sharing dishes and he brought them out perfectly timed to our tables never so it felt to crowded and brought us each bread at the end to soak up every last bit of their delicious dishes!

We have been at Barano a number of times. Usually a safe bet for a good, nice dinner. This time, unfortunately, the mains were quite below par. Service was excellent, as usual.

Loved Barano! Nice open atmosphere and friendly server. The fried zucchini blossoms and steamed artichoke were out of this world! The pasta with honey and ricotta good - very rich. I suggest splitting it.
And we also had branzino - so-so - could use more flavoring.
Also we ordered dirty martinis, but they were very lemony - we sent them back but they accommodated us with the appropriate briny libation.
Will definitely return!

Great restaurant, Food was very tasty, plates were a little small. Although it was Good Friday and we couldn’t sample all the appetizers ( can’t eat meat). The Whole Branzino was very well seasoned and delicious. The service was outstanding, and dessert menu and coffee were very enjoyable. Worth the trip from Manhattan.

Everything about this restaurant was incredible. Food was among the best Italian I've ever had, great wine list, excellent service, great ambience.

The reason this doesn't get Five Stars? BREAD. You're an Italian restaurant. Bread should be free and plentiful. $6 for four pieces of bread is a slap in the face to Italians.
